Subject: Music so psychedelic, it pushes the outer envelope
Even if a better recording never surfaces (and IIRC a lot of the band's 1970 shows weren't recorded by the band, or the recordings were lost), I believe that in our lifetimes there will be technology to clean this up massively. If the human brain can make out every note that Phil and Jerry are playing, then in theory a digital filter can.

Subject: Memory for a Life Time
The group I came with basically disassembled and we all went our own way. To be totally honest I can't remember if the night included two shows or just two sets. I do remember standing on the stage(behind the amps)for the first part of the night and then sitting in the first row directly in front of Garcia for the second part. The auditorium was weird in that the stage wasn't really a stage but more an extension of the seating area just ramping away from the seats. The separation between the seats and stage was nothing more that a three foot tall pony wall.Anyway there I sat for the second part of my adventure looking right into the eyes of Jerry Garcia(he couldn't have been more than six feet away from me)!! As I stood there and watched him play he looked not at me but through me. As I said in my title it was a memory for a lifetime.
The quality of this performance is very difficult to listen to, but for me it is all that is holy in my Grateful Dead world.I remain in touch with a few of the members of the group I was with that night including my brother(now 53). We all consider that night as a gift.
I realize that this is not a review per se but we're all entitled to our memories and I wanted to share this on with the only people I think could understand.
Listen to the show if you can handle the poor quality because the band was ass kickin' that night.
I'm rating this a four so as not to bring down the overall rating and because this is one that every deadhead should experience.
Love to all during this season of joy.

Dancing In the Street is a must along with the Dark Star.
Subject: Welcome to NJ
The Dark Star is special with some extended wah weirdness that smells more like '74 than '70.
The Dancin' jam is nice, especially around 7:30 when the "stuck in the mud" part of the song begins and Phil gets to do a bit of soloing. The re-entry, as always, is painful as hell.
Subject: Cool show, seriously muddy
